Fine tuning your flipper

Postby Wisdom » Fri Aug 02, 2019 11:44 pm

I'm not sure if this is old news, but applied some of my grease monkey experience to these ball bearing pivots. So like any bearing set up there is a sweet spot. I'm afraid people setting these up with slop are going to have problems. And to tight is just dangerous. What I did was snug them up to where I could feel some friction, then back off maybe a quarter turn. This gets you some very free and solid action. I took it a step further by syncing them. This does nothing for handle bias. But if your using pocket clips, adjustable spring latches, you can compensate by fine tuning your Bali. I did this by holding blade and safe handle horizontally, with blade firmly in handle. Pick the other side up until it's completely locked out. Then just simply drop it, and count how many times it swings freely, and take note of how high it reaches the other side. Same thing on opposing handle. Do this until you have them synced together and you'll be amazed at how predictable your knife becomes.
